Re: Dragonfly aircraft from Jonny Quest

If you are lacking the time or too lazy to make and paint this, they sell it pre-finished as well.

I would like to know the scale though.....

Re: USS DISCOVERY vs TOS E THOUGHTS

And what the hell was that other series with McDowell? The ship was shaped loosely like a dragonfly... Very neat... FARSCAPE! Yes. That's it. LOL


Close but no Banana.

You are thinking of Lexx

Re: USS DISCOVERY vs TOS E THOUGHTS

Although the bridge is apparently on the bottom of the saucer. Gene Rodenberry rolls in his grave.


If they bring out a kit of it, just lip it over and then it might make sense. I agree that from what I have seen, I like this ship. The Discovery not so much....

Re: More new from Space Battleship Yamato 2202

I have this as a side interest to my normal 1/2500 stuff.

Makes for an interesting side by side comparison with the 1/1000 Trek models such as the Refit E, NX-01 and, of course, the Excelsior/Enterprise B

Re: Intrepid Class and Smaller

I thought you have to make Admiral before you went evil. Nah. Admiral's go power made/Machiavellian. Captains go bug nuts. Classic case being Garth of Izar. But also Captain Tracey in "The Omega Glory" and Captain Merik in "Bread & Circuses". Kirk came close on occasions. Gr...

Re: Has anyone bought off this guy?

Some of them look really good. But use the zoom function on Ebay for a closer look and the finish on some (not all) is very rough. The Andromeda Ascendant models in particular look like they will take a LOT of work. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who had bought from him however as ther...

Re: USS DISCOVERY vs TOS E THOUGHTS

Make is so you have only four transfer points between parts of the ship? No naval architect would ever let that fly. It screams structural weakness. The design echoes in many ways the Vengeance from Star Trek - Into Darkness although at least the Vengeance didn't have those transfer points. Not jus...

Re: USS DISCOVERY vs TOS E THOUGHTS

I'm still not sold on the design You are not alone there. Its really not doing it for me. I tend to have an immediate reaction yes or no when I see any ship design, trek or otherwise. Unlike many I liked the NX-01 straight away. Same with the TOS Enterprise (although perhaps not unsurprising as its...

Re: What to do about Photobucket

Haven't had the "threat" yet but in any event they can go do one. There is nothing on my PH account that I don't have saved in various external hard drives as back up. I only used PB for adding to forums such as AST as I didn't realise you could upload direct. If there is any justice, PB w...
